Thumbs up Exhaust and Cold Air Intake - MPG

Had the 14.4 Magna Flow Exhaust installed a few months ago. Was getting around 17-18 mpg highway and about 13-14 city.
3 Days ago I installed the K&N 63 series cold air intake. Took an hour long trip and now can see a for sure change. The truck is running a little cooler and sounds a lot smoother. Super happy with the upgrades and performance.

Install was a breeze. The instructions are bang on. I installed it with the Superchips 91 performance tune and found a big difference in performance! I have noticed a nice little improvement in gas mileage as well. Around a 2L/100km difference. My buddy just installed an S&B this weekend and said there is a noticeable difference in performance. better throttle response. and he doesn't have a tuner. Definitely worth the money IMO.

Im planning on doing a similar combination with the SB and I see you are getting the 85mm TB. I have some questions for you. Did you notice a difference in performance and gas mileage? what company did you go with for the TB and how much did it set you back?
